    I love...myself.

    Today I was teaching the grade 4's about February and Valentine's Day. I gave them a paper with 3 hearts and the words "I love..." at the top. Each child had to draw a picture in each heart and write 3 things that they love. For example, I love Hamburgers. I love my mother. I love my computer. (yes, I really got computers). I had 2 children draw a picture of themselves in one of their hearts. I had them read their papers to me and they said, "I love me."
    The worst part is, I didn't even think about what they drew and wrote right away. Only after reflecting on it did I realize how much we can learn from our students, children or anybody else.

    I think there is an enormous amount we can all learn (or relearn) from young children - things like wonder, curiosity, hope, joy, magic, truth, honesty, and the absence of deception and political correctness.

    Some of those things we can also learn from cats :mrgreen:

    I believe that too. And the part about cats too.

    It must have made your heart sing to see those kids put themselves into that heart! It makes mine sing just thinking about it!

    Gotta agree with David, too. You can certainly learn all of that, and more, from cats. (I had to say that. There are four pairs of eyes staring at me. I know they read the post!)

    I hear you! Being painfully pecked by six recalcitrant, politically incorrect budgies is a fate I'd rather not dwell on! It's as bad as being licked to death by five angry cats!

    One does not "sing" one's own praises, David. One should not have to do so. One is a budgie (or a cat). There are others who are responsible for producing paeons of adoration! Sheesh, man!
